Summit Partners

Growth equity for exceptional entrepreneurs: your skill, ingenuity and perseverance have already made your business a success. Our capital, expertise and resources can take you further.

Summit Partners was founded in 1984 with a commitment to find and partner with exceptional entrepreneurs to help them accelerate their growth and achieve dramatic results.

Since then, Summit has become the investment partner of choice for many of the best growth companies in the world.

We have the capital and team to support your growth initiatives.

Our range of funds enables us to offer tailored options designed to support your company’s continued growth. Entrepreneurs and management teams use capital from Summit Partners for a variety of purposes—from growth and shareholder liquidity to recapitalizations and management buyouts—but always with the singular goal of success.

We are currently investing more than $7.2 billion into equity and fixed income opportunities. Our target investment range is $10 million to more than $500 million. We are equally comfortable investing for minority or majority positions.
